If your holiday is catered around the idea of partying and getting as much clubbing experience under your belt as possible, then you'll want to pick a city that stays up until the night is over. There are plenty of cities which know how to party around the world, but choosing one might come down to your budget and importantly, your friends' budgets too.

What is the biggest party city in the world?

What counts as the 'biggest party city' depends on your perspective: biggest geographically? Biggest appetite for mixers? Biggest club atmosphere? With all of these considered, Vegas tends to take the trophy.

Las Vegas is a party city that feels more like a party island due to its isolation in the Nevada desert. Be careful not to blow all of your drinks money on gambling though, as Vegas has a lot of casinos to offer. It's also wise to keep your luggage protected with student travel insurance if you're travelling with your friends. In the meantime, checking yourself into a party hotel will start the holiday off with a bang. Just remember though, the legal drinking age for the US is over 21!
